Academic Profile

I am an architect, engineer, and urban planner educated and working in Europe with past work experiences in Asia. I am the chair of the architecture research group at LTU which includes 20 researchers (seniors and PhD students). My work focuses on the nexus between resources and urbanization, urban experiments/labs, and participatory design/planning.  My aim is to help transform architecture and urban planning to support a more resource-inclusive (resourceful) society. I have worked in a number of externally funded research projects for a combined 15 mEur (3 mEur as a PI). Funders include the Qatar National Research Fund, EU Commission's framework programme,  Swedish Energy Agency, Formas, and Vinnova.
